Book ID: 91185

Six years ago Charles Bessard and Nanne de Ru founded the Powerhouse Company for Architecture, Design and Research, with offices in Rotterdam and Copenhagen. Featuring selected projects, from designs to finished buildings, this publication shows the architects' unique and "integrated" approach. Through key concepts such as context, collaboration, design and detail, Bessard and de Ru elucidate their understanding of contemporary architecture, which can fulfill the requirements of urban life both functionally and aesthetically. In order to do this, the range of architectural possibilities need not always be exhausted; sometimes simple, high-quality solutions are preferable. This goal, and much more, manifests in the Powerhouse Company's buildings, shown throughout this book.
